anyone used this brand before ?

i love the Joker mirrors but these have the same look @ $79 for a pair !

now i have new bars looking at these and wondered if anyone had used this make ? before i order for Uk delivery.
They look cheap mate - you can't adjust the mirror in the housing and more importantly you can't adjust them left or right , so i expect you'll end up with a perfect veiw of your elbows....

That's a great thing.I really love admiring my elbows,especially after I have shaved them.

The Joker Machine website says "fully adjustable in every direction"
The Ebay ad has also stolen Joker Machine's photo , which speaks volumes.....

The Joker bar ends have the glass mounted on a swivel, they adjust in any direction.
I just got mine a few weeks ago and they are very well made, a good investment in my opinion.

The mirror diameter is something I would question. Looks like about 1.5" in diameter. Wont be able to see much with that especially since they are not adjustable.

Ok.. So I got these e-bay bar end mirrors installed and will make a few observations...
1. They actually are a high quality piece.. Billet black anodized and the mirror is truly 2 1/4 (as they stated in the auction)
2. I really wish these moved left to right instead of just up/down.. but after running them for a few hours today I am really impressed with how much I can see!!
3. The install was straight forward.. I really don't like the fact that you have to drill your handle bars to get them to fit! (I heard Jokers had an expander so you did not have any thing like this)
4. I really like the look of the Bike without the ugly stock mirrors.. I just am undecided on the bar end mirrors..
5. I am overall satisfied with the quality..so you guys be the judge (I am waiting on the drag specialists turn signal relocation to move them down to the lower forks)..

I have the jokers. The expander seems to work ok, but is not as secure as I would like. As costly as they are, having one leap to it's death is no picnic. That said, they work GREAT!!! Worth every penny, as I am a wide body, corn fed midwesterner. I would be thrilled to see my elbows! I see my forearms! With the jokers, I see behind me. I did a horrible job on my rubber grips, hacking and slashing to get the mirrors to fit right, but I want new ones. They pivot in the billet housing, and are superb quality. Joe
